Your wedding dress is the most personalized gift you can give yourself – it practically defines the ceremony's style and says a lot about your personality. Naturally, choosing that perfect gown is no simple task, but you can make the process a lot easier on yourself by finding inspiration before hitting the boutiques.
A good method of figuring out what exactly you want by watching memorable ceremonies, like Forrest Gump's modest country marriage or Princess Diana's lavish royal fairytale. Find weddings that speak to you and note what it is about them that catches your eye. As you compile a selection of dresses that you like, you should start to see a unifying theme, be it color or style. Flipping through a bridal magazine or two will also work.
Whatever you choose, just remember that this is your day and that ultimately the only opinion that matters is your own. And once you have your gown squared away, you'll be able to concentrate on wedding favors and picking the perfect menu. Remember, if you look fabulous and your guests leave smiling, it's bound to be an event to remember.
